Do the math on just theirs of returning business. There's a lot more, this is just examples. For instance, it costs cx 20 times more just in fuel costs for every minute added to a block time than the pilots get paid per minute. But yet some idiot cx manager decided to do away with block guarantee thinking it would save money, not knowing why block guarantee was introduced by airlines back in the day, exactly to save money.

Loss of good will always costs the companies more than what they presume to save by such treatment. It's very bad and incompetent management to think otherwise.
BINGO! And thank you!
Now for your next trick: try convincing ole geezers like STW of this and the impact it would have had if all 3000 of us or even half would have done this in stead of resigning themselves to their fate of cotton pluckers.
